    Hi there, we are currently in Severac le Château. Today I got hit by a White van man. He thumped mirrors and kept on driving. We are RHD Hyundai i800.
    I checked with my insurance,(RSA), they thought it would be OK till home. I'm not so sure. What do you think.
    I thought of going to get one of those extension mirrors for towing caravans.
    Thanks

    if the mirror frame is ok, you could buy a stick on mirror glass..

    if not.. as you suggest

    But don't buy a replacement locally. They are different for right and left hand drive.
    Edit: IT is for Ducatos - not sure about your vehicle. :)

    Thanks guys.
    I went down to the site reception and asked their advice. She had an old unused externion mirror from when she had a shop. Only charged 10 euros

    Once again thanks.

    I carry a spare passenger side mirror in Europe and the tools to change it....constructed from the parts of two previously broken passenger mirrors, arising from the same type of encounter as you. Hope everything gets sorted OK. :france:
